- Script, Music/Lyrics, Rights Questions -

How can I get the script?
Due to copyright laws, the only legal way to get a complete version of the script is through TAMS. See the Introduction page for contact information.
How can I get the lyrics?
You have several options:
  1. See an online text version
  2. Download the .gzipped version (Tower Lyrics Archive)
  3. Contact TAMS (address on the Introduction page); they can send you a copy of the script/libretto for perusal.
  4. The reduced score for the movie version is commercially available. This may also be true for the Broadway music, I just haven't seen it yet.

- Concept Questions -

What does 3-5-0-0 mean?
Answer #1: According to James Rado, it represents the number of G.I. casualties (either per week or per month, he isn't sure) at the height of the Vietnam War. (Thanks to Jessica Kardos for this answer.)

Answer #2: Three-five-zero-zero, or the number three-thousand-five-hundred, is the number of Americans (Marines), who, on March 8, 1965, landed in Vietnam, the first ever to be specifically designated as COMBAT troops, thus marking a turning point, the official beginning of America's (or LBJ's) escalation of the War in Vietnam. (Thanks to Joseph Tioga for this answer.)

- Miscellaneous Questions -

Why do some HAIR logos dot the "i" with an infinity sign and have a subscript "1" at the end?
All productions of HAIR produced by Michael Butler carry these trademarks on the logo. (These were done originally by Jerry Ragni.) In addition, the show's cast ("the Tribe") selects a Native American name.
